The MPA 5thAnnual Walkathon was held on the school grounds of Menlo Park Academy. The Walkathon fundraiser and community builder has become a student and family favorite, engaging students across the school and welcoming parent participation.
This year MPA adopted a popular organizing model used by several other schools in the Northeast Ohio region. MPA families received packets for their student(s) and were asked to send out letters to friends and family members for support of the event. Prizes were offered to classrooms with the highest participation, families with the most dollars earned, and longest distance donation received. Once again, the MPA community exceeded expectations and this year the WalkAThon raised over $15,000 in support of the students!
In addition to individual support, local businesses also provided financial support to the WalkAThon.
Corporate sponsors included:
Advanced Medical Services Kelley Green Web - Communications & Development
Ameriprise Financial - Richard Warren Krish Services Group, Inc.
Barney & Associates Laba Busnawi - New York Life Insurance
Crossroads Animal Hospital Micro Clean Services
Crowd Control Depot Robert Maschke Architects, Inc.

Decker Appliance Services The Green Iguana Hotel - John & Gwen Pittman

Menlo Park Academy would like to thank all the families for their support, the individual and corporate donors for their generosity, and our students for enthusiastically embracing WalkAThon. What you all do matters!
